CIO Events & Resources


CIO Bi-Monthly Gatherings are intended to deepen Fordham IT staff’s sense of community within the organization. Together, Fordham IT staff celebrates its collective achievements and has fun together, shares new initiatives, and shows support to each other.


Why we gather…

The CIO Bi-Monthly Gatherings are an important way to build a sense of connection among Fordham IT staff. We’re a disparate group; many of us work on different campuses, or on the same campus but in different buildings.

Each CIO event has a different theme, intended to broaden staff minds, encourage work-life balance, and enable the entire team to support each other better.

CIO Events
